Name this knot

Ok, I was given an old piece of bow line the other day and it had this knot tied in it. I've not seen it before, but then again I'm not much of a Boy Scout either. Anyone know what its called? Maybe its not even a real named knot and that's why I've never seen it before. I just spent 30 minutes trying to duplicate it and can't so now it really has me wondering.

It's called a Trucker Hitch knot. Not sure why it would be on a bowline, but it's a great knot for securing stuff in the bed of your truck.
Here's a tutorial on how to tie it...what did I win??

It's probably in an old bowline because someone used it to roll a boat and tie it around the rolled up boat.

Not sure but it could be a Directional 8. Can be used in the place of a prussik knot in a zdrag. Similar to a truckers hitch loop but static, a lot stronger, but does not pull out.
